I’m sending photos to Sally, of her and Helen giving the Special Plaque to the Princess Royal. Since Hotmail doesn’t really want to work with Safari any more (yes indeed, I may yet abandon Hotmail, but in my experience, when you tell someone you use a different email address they are still sometimes using the old one two years later), I’m using Firefox at present, but blimey, it’s slow. You attach a picture and, like a child with a new coloured pencil and its tongue sticking out, it continues to say, earnestly “scanning and uploading” for several minutes. And you can’t have several pictures in a queue of course. One at a time, or it cries for its mummy. And it only seems to take two pictures before it is full up and belches quietly and you have to send them before loading in another. I am almost catatonic with boredom. I just had to check the ‘sent messages’ box to see where I’m up to. Thank goodness I only took eight photos, or this would take all night.
Maybe it’s time to revert to the simplest, non-upgraded (upgraded, my arse) version. I mean, if I, the sweetest natured person since the dinosaurs stalked the earth, am a little irritated, how bad must it be?
